I have been treated twice for lymes but the symptoms have come back. I was treated in the North East and now that I have moved to Florida I need to talk to someone who understands. Any help is appreciated!!

Hi Mandy -

Welcome to the forum - sorry you're here but glad you found us.

It sounds like your previous treatment was inadequate, which is pretty common.

Please review the "New to Lyme?" thread info at the top of the page - it has invaluable information about diagnosis, symptoms, treatment, etc. and will help you prepare for your first appointment.

We can try to help you find an LLMD. Please email Girlie, our head mod, and she can help you with contact info for LLMDs in your area to consider. You can find her email address in her profile. Or click here:

I'm also a mod but not around as consistently but will help however I can.

​​Y​​ou can go to ​​The Lyme Disease Association and search for LLMD's 3 times in a month. You have to register first. Here is the link:

Y​ou can email ​the​ Tick-Borne Disease Alliance at​:

ILADS has their own referral system as well:


You will want to find an ILADS trained doctor, as ID Docs (Infectious Disease Doctors) as well as many others believe Lyme is hard to catch and easy to treat, and don't believe in the reality of chronic Lyme--they adhere dogmatically to the IDSA and very narrow definition of Lyme and limited treatment. Go to the ILADS site to read the new (2014) Treatment guidelines to get you started on your healing journey:

Please don't hesitate to ask any questions that come up!
